Recently I received the new knitting book "400 Knitting Stitches" to review. This book is compiled of 400 different knitting stitches, as you can guess from the title. The chapters include, knitting basics, knit-purl stitches, crossed stitches and cables, slipped stitches, lacy stitches, double stitches, twisted stitches, cast-off stitches, fancy stitches, and symbols. All the stitches include easy to read directions to create the stitch pattern. This book is good for all knitters, intermediate or advanced.
I find these kind of books useful for changing and making patterns. For example if you're knitting a sweater but want add a more ornate sleeve edge, just choose a stitch pattern that you like and apply it to the sweater pattern. Or if you're a beginner knitter, choose a lacy stitch and make your own scarf pattern out of it. There's unlimited possibilities with a book like this.
Below are a couple of stitches you'll find in the book.
